Connecticut man accused of DUI

From prison time to stiff financial penalties and a criminal record that may haunt people for the rest of their life, a DUI conviction can have serious ramifications. As a result, those who are facing drunk driving charges should make sure they approach their case correctly. Furthermore, in Stamford, Connecticut, and across the U.S., some people are wrongfully accused of driving under the influence, which can make the situation all the more upsetting. Unfortunately, some of these innocent drivers have had to pay for a crime they never committed.

Law enforcement officials recently took a Killingworth man into custody and charged him with operating while under the influence. The 25-year-old man faces a number of other charges, including charges related to endangering a nine-day-old infant who was also riding in the car.

Authorities claim the man bumped into a vehicle as he evaded a DUI checkpoint on Route 81 and took off. After pursuing the driver, law enforcement officials pulled him over and noticed that he showed signs of intoxication. The man was apprehended close to Clinton and his bond was set at $500.

Drunk driving charges often generate a tremendous amount of stress for suspects and their families as well. However, DUI suspects who present their case appropriately may be able to secure a more favorable outcome, such as a dismissed charge or reduced penalties. When people are charged with driving under the influence and unsure of what to do next, contacting an experienced legal professional and discussing the details of their case may be helpful.
